SPOKANE — A state arbitrator has reinstated a Spokane sheriff’s deputy who was fired last August for having sex while on duty.
The Spokesman-Review reported that Deputy Scott Kenoyer will have to sign a disciplinary agreement to get his job back and receive back pay. The agreement will put him on probation for two years. During that time he could be fired for any new disciplinary problems.
The agreement includes a 60-day suspension without pay.
The sheriff fired Kenoyer in August 2013 after he admitted having sex with a woman while on duty earlier that year.
Arbitrator Starr Knutson said Kenoyer had a clean record in his 15 years on the force and was truthful when confronted about the incident. The arbitrator says Kenoyer also expressed remorse about his actions.
